About Kirsten Loder

My family first visited the Hawaii back in the 1970's. We explored the different islands and finally stayed on Kauai in 1983. My parents fell in love with Hanalei and purchased their own piece of paradise in 1989. Our family has continued to enjoy and love Hanalei all these years. We think you'll love it as much as we do.

Mahalo nui loa and Aloha,

Beautiful location. Would definitely rent again.

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for my daughter and son and I. Walking distance to the beach and town. The house had everything we needed. Bikes, beach chairs, beach towels. Very relaxing and laid back. We cooked Thanksgiving dinner and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed.

Great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Aloha House in the middle of August. The house is very close to the beach, on a quiet cul-de-sac. Although the house has only 2 bedrooms, there's an additional area with two beds upstairs, so our teenage kids had their own space they didn't need to share.

The house has all the things you need to head out to the beach: towels, umbrellas, chairs, boards etc.

The only downside is the extremely slow Internet connection. You only get 0.5Mb/sec down, 0.4Mb/sec up, which is only good to check emails. If you need to do any work related stuff or watch Netflix movies, it is way too slow.

We were also surprised to discover the trash bin outside is shared with the neighbors. This information is nowhere to be found in the instructions inside the house. So we were mildly shocked when one of our neighbors walked to our carport and dumped his trash bag in our bin.

Very nice place to get away from it all.

  • 5 of 5

We spent nine nights there and want to return again next year. It's a short walk to the beach a not much further walk into the town center. The house is well appointed, the photos in the listing are accurate and the beds are heavenly and to die for. Hanalei is our kind of town, kind of funky, yet fun. The house is on a culdesac in a generally quiet area.

Wonderful family retreat in Hanalei

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a lovely time at Kirsten's Hanalei beach house. The house is very well-appointed and has everything you need to jump right into an awesome northern Kauai holiday. We especially appreciated the bicycles, the small travel cooler and the beach toys. It is a very short bike ride or a pretty short walk into town, where you will find everything you need including a big supermarket, a great health food store, a great coffee shop, food trucks (try Turmeric Indian, it is amazing), shops and an array of restaurants including the upscale and very good Bar Acuda and the hit or miss but still quite nice The Dolphin.

But most importantly, the house is in a cul-de-sac basically right across from the beach. Hanalei Bay is picture perfect beach, good for laying out or kids splashing in the shallows or body boarding and surfing. Pavilion is the section of beach closest to the house, it is a 3-5 minute walk from the house to a great section of beach with a lifeguard station right there.

Our family has rented three similar houses in the area and this one was our favorite, mainly because it was so close to the beach but also because the place was so comfortable and felt so private and quiet. We were really happy there, I'm sure you would be as well!

Exactly what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed in this house for 4/5 years now. It is perfect for us! We can come and go from the beach all day long. Run home for lunch or a quick nap without having to load into the car. And the house is great. Classic Hawaii. Comfortable and welcoming. We especially LOVE all the gear provided. Most houses don't provide any! And each year things are updated or added. The owner is so helpful and easy to work with. It feels like home every time we return.

Perfect Location in Beautiful Hanalei

  • 4 of 5

The location was perfect for walking to the beach or to the restaurants and shops in Hanalei. The house was stocked with beach chairs, plush beach towels, boggy boards, bikes and much more. And the kitchen was well stocked cooking equipment if you want to stay in some of your meals.

The only drawback was that many of the windows do not close and so the house got pretty cold some of the nights we were there in February.
